Curriculum of the department
In the first two years, students study liberal arts to obtain a wide range of knowledge and basic backgrounds. At the same time, they start learning their major subjects.
Major subjects are roughly classified as theoretical or applied subjects. Prime subjects extracted from the major subjects are categorized by color: “physics”, “chemistry”, “biology”, “geology”, “informatics and mathematics”, and “social sciences,” as shown in the diagram below. See the “Syllabus/Flow of specialized education” for details. Major subjects are designed to give students an academic base for application to the harmonious coexistence of humans and nature, including the earth, water, and vegetation.
After mastering these major subjects, students write a graduation thesis that contains all the knowledge they have obtained. Further, they are required to think of, plan, and conduct their own research. Mastering these subjects will enable students to succeed in the world as environmental specialists who can contribute to community planning, mainly targeted at nature and the rural environment.
